Sport legs? Are talking about sports car vs sedan or sports legs vs sedan legs?

Do sports legs get carbon fiber bones or spoilers for downforce?


Seriously though I do not what you mean.

It's a supplement similar to CytoMax, etc.

I haven't tried it.

I got a couple free samples from somewhere. Used one of them. I have had the other in my bike food container for about a year now. From what I remember, I thought it worked, but obviously wasn't so great that I had to get more.

Sports nutritionist I used to work with said you can get everything from your diet that are I. sport legs. Don't use them personally.

IMO all sports supplements are a waste of money. Eat good food and get good sleep you should be OK.

I can say this, diet is probably key and I eat well but unless I'm not eating the right thing{s) I have a tendency to cramp in my calves when it's hot. I can ride through that pretty easy anymore but when I get that "twinge" in the quad region...that's a hard one to work through, not impossible but a lot more difficult

If I use Endurolytes I have little to no cramping so I'm not sold solely on the diet thing unless I can be shown or told what to change in my diet Having said that, obviously, my body is deficient in something but is it because it needs more and gets depleted faster as I ride that I don't get enough of regularly in my diet ?

I did buy and use the SportsLegs and found no benefit from their use whereas the Endurolytes seem to work well for me.

Maybe sodium? Do you know a good nutritionist to ask?

Could be, I cut WAY back on salt and started using sea salt. No, other than my regular doc no specialist in nutrition
